According to at least one of his many Social Security cards, Sunday marks the alleged birthday of Barack Barry Hussein Soetoro Obama. The president is turning 52 which, by almost unbelievable coincidence, is also the exact number of weeks each year he lies his butt off, creates dissent, and cripples the American economy! There's one for Ripley's Believe it or Not!
The president has already been presented with a cake by Nancy Pelosi, whom a spokesman described as being "known for her affinity for dark chocolate." We can only pray that this in reference to the cake itself, and not some personal gift she's planning on sharing with Obama involving lingerie and WD-40.
The birthday boy was able to enjoy not only his own slice of cake, but also an extra slice which was left over because, for reasons still unexplained, Ambassador Chris Stevens failed to show up for the party.
In any event, Hope n' Change Cartoons wants to wish the president the very happiest of birthdays.
Specifically, we "want to" - but can't and won't. Because what we really wish is that his sorry keester would be dragged before several investigating committees which would put him under oath about Benghazi, Fast & Furious, and the IRS attack on conservatives (you know, the scandals that the president and Jay Carney dismiss as being "phony.")
We wish we could ask him why people really can't keep their health insurance policies if they liked them, and why Obamacare is raising costs by preposterous margins and pushing people out of the system instead of in?
We wish we could find out why he hates small businesses and American energy production. We wish we could force him to tell us why he identifies with Trayvon Martin but not the black kids in Chicago being killed by other black kids, why the Ft. Hood massacre was an incident of "workplace violence," and why the Whitehouse is closed to ordinary visitors but is still wide open to celebrity galas and five-star (well, maybe one star and a crescent moon) Ramadan dinners?
But none of these wishes is likely to come true. No, this miserable little sheepdip who made his political name by squeaking "present!" in the Illinois Senate will be opening expensive presents from his various syncophants, toadies, and special interest lobbyists.
And of course, he'll be opening a very special present from Hope n' Change Cartoons, too. And it will look a lot like dark chocolate. Bon appétit!
Carney draws a line in the sand. Specifically, the sand at Martha's Vineyard.
